So, the next step, we've done gentle whispering in its ear, that didn't work. We tried hammers, pry bars, penetrating oil, that didn't work. So the next tool is a puller that we get from the "Snap On" guy. The bar that he's got there in his hand, that spreader bar, that's largely considered the one mostly used for brake drums. It has a spring loaded pin here, so it snaps in and it will stay there. Now, Mark's got safety glasses on because this could be bits of flying metal. Using the impact gun to tighten up gently on that and it will come off with a pretty scary boing. And pieces hit the floor and that kind of thing. Now the brake drum is broken loose of the axle and one more pull should do it. With the kind of force that Mark's exerting on this thing, we've destroyed the drum but there's not much of a market for old brake drums; don't need to keep them around. Looking at some original shoes and some very original rust in there.
